PRESIDENT Sata has called for a comprehensive resolution of the security situation in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and the Great Lakes region.
The President noted with concern the faltering process of holding a private sector investment conference planned for October this year.
“The Great Lakes regional consultancy on investment opportunities has both not yet taken place, reducing possibility of the main conference taking place this year,” Mr Sata said.
He said this in a speech read for him  by Minister of Foreign Affairs Harry Kalaba here yesterday at the Fourth Regional Oversight  Mechanism (ROM) of peace, security and cooperation framework of the DRC and the Great Lakes region.
Mr Sata called for concerted efforts in ensuring that the conference takes place as soon as possible.
Mr Sata pointed out that as envisaged by the ROM, holding a stakeholders’ conference on business is key in making a positive economic impact for the region.
